Wrongly imprisoned whistle-blower Rachel Pierce would rather take her chances with her court appeal than accept her place as the first Interstellar Bride destined for the Colony. She’s stubborn and determined to seek justice—and her freedom—on Earth…but her mates are not willing to risk her life or her future on a system they believe to be both primitive and corrupt.
Maxim of Prillon Prime fought ten long years in the Hive wars. Captured and tortured with his second, Ryston, they escaped only to be rejected by their own people and condemned to life on the Colony with the other “contaminated” cyborg warriors. As leader of Sector 3, it’s Maxim’s duty to set an example for his warriors and summon a bride. When she refuses transport, he can’t allow her rejection to demoralize an entire planet of battle hardened but jaded warriors. Maxim and Ryston transport to Earth where they decide she’s theirs and a maximum security human prison will not keep them apart.
Getting Rachel to the Colony is only the first challenge they will face. Convincing their beautiful mate to surrender to not one, but two dominant warriors is another. Even if they can win her love, a new evil is rising on the Colony and someone close to Maxim will be its first victim. Maxim will be its second, unless Rachel’s love and relentless pursuit of the truth proves strong enough to save him.
A while back I read one of the blurbs for Goodwin’s Interstellar Brides and was intrigued by that blurb. Fast forward a few week s later, I was racking my brain about this book in particular and when I figured the series , I dove in and fell in love with Goodwin’s prose and storytelling.
So when I heard that her next upcoming book was a spin off featuring The Colony I was intrigued and luckily enough I was fortunate enough to get my hands on an early copy of this book. Whilst most of the books I have read in either of the series follow a stand formula for the first chapter or so. The story preceding is different and unique. Goodwin knows how to tell a story and Rachel’s story might be my favourite to date.
Rachael is a scientist for a medical company and was happy at her job. Until she was the scrap goat after she tried to do the right thing and chuck in to jail. With only two options in front of her , Rachel isn’t going to chose the easy way out. She is determined to clear her name. However others have ideas. And a story is born and becomes quiet the adventure.
The Interstellar Bride program has always accepted any one no matter their circumstances and when her lawyer tells to get herself test just in case. Rachel goes along with it even though she believes that he will have an happier outcome. She stubbornly believes that justice will prevail and it okay to stay on Earth. Until her lawyer gets word that there is a hit on her and Earth isn’t safe anymore.
Enter her mates, Prillon Maxim and Ryton who have already faced their shame after The Hive captured them and changed them. Now they have more stable lives after recent changes and with a bride they thought life would be nearly complete. Maxim maybe believe his duty as a governor for his sector for the warrior to set an example. But this man is willing to do anything to get what he wants and with a stubborn Rachel on Earth in danger.
It means that he might have to take things into his own hand with Ryston and claimed their mate and make her surrender to them.
Goodwin’s first spinoff was a treat. I loved how she decided to create a series about The Colony and their inhabitations. I loved that she used Rachel’s knowledge as part of the story and created a fascinating story as a result. It was interesting and intriguing to say the least as a result. I loved that Rachel challenged things as well and Maxim and Ryton allowed for her to do so . They may have had their way but they were gentleman when it came to push verse shove. Rachel was the perfect mate for them and I loved she saw beyond the scars and implant. They may of done their duty but there was real feelings at stake and Goodwin left no stone unturned. I loved the introduction to the Colony and can’t wait for more
Whilst mostly standalone, I advice you to read Taken by Her Mates ( Book 4 in the Interstellar Brides) for a richer experience as there some events in there that lead to the creation of the spin off series .
Once upon a time, a young girl was born into an average, working class family. The wee little girl, convinced she was not an average child but was, in fact, a fairy princess, longed to leave the mundane world behind and live her dreams. She grew up, went to school, and when she’d grown too big to wear tutus and tiaras in public without drawing unwanted attention, turned to writing down her fantasies instead.
Now a bit older, her fantasies have grown to include sexually dominant men who know how to ensure a woman’s pleasure. Grace believes all women should be treated like princesses, in the bedroom and out of it, and writes love stories where men know how to make their women feel pampered, protected and very well taken care of.
She currently lives in Oregon where she spends her days writing, and her nights in the arms of her very own Prince.
